alright so basically, stacked preserved salted eggs.
neither these eggs or the salt were phenomenal quality so any waste from the experiment is minimized

I can't quite remember but I think I put 8 or 9 eggs in so in order from first taken out, to last removed.
some of the eggs broke when being put in, which wasn't a big deal as long as they pooled properly, but some of them did not, as I could not pack the salt in tight enough to prevent it leaking between layers, or so I thought.

the reason I had done this the way i had is that, every recipe or tutorial wanted you to bury the eggs in a wide shallow pan just a few at a time, and take up large amounts of room in your fridge for multiple days, which is not only very inconvenient, for storing food, but also locks up your pans or other more important containers.

it seems that I could have actually packed the salt quite tightly, as that is what I had done to 8 and 9, which were the bottom eggs.
1 came out last while 2 and 4 I believe I had torn a bit when putting inside

7 is still sticky, it had squirted out from its home and shot to the side of the bottle which I suppose I should have taken a picture of before removing all of these, but I wasn't originally planning on making a thread.
I ended up with 3 perfect as intended yolks, and while I believe I can probably get 2 and 4 to work as intended with a bit of effort, 3 5 6 and 7 are basically just crumbled yolk mixed with, well, salt.
my goal for this I think will be creating a system so simple that anyone can create salt cured eggs with minimum equipment and effort.
but my real final goal will be making yolk logs or bricks so that it can be handled similarly to cheese instead of tiny nutmegs

I'm going to be trying to dry out the salt again by baking or cooking it in a few different ways, as it's actually quite fluffed up from this experience, though it also still has some yolk bits in it so I am curious what will happen.

I had also put some of the chunks from 3567 on a baking tray for 32 minutes, it looked like a cookie bit and when I went to touch it, it exploded into powder, which has an interesting flavour that I can't describe well, like roasted pumpkin seeds or something.

the areas that had water touching them seem to be the only bits that arent still just powder, which is interesting
as it only became solid once the water was removed, so the heat increased the speed of the natural crystallizing reaction

going to need to let the brick cool before i even attempt to touch it, but the top grains on it are loose.

fell asleep, the brick was soft around everywhere but the middle, which was basically just a whole hard wall from the first bake, this and the sheet were baked for 40 minutes

I'm going to try and get a clay-like consistency before baking and see what I can do with the salt structurally
the stuff was pretty resilient on that original 15 minute bake, so if I can figure out a good design I should be able to make things like salt drying racks and maybe even salt grills just for keks

can't really stir without breaking them.

oddly enough the two 8 and 9 which could breath the least were two of the best ones

alright I have 3 consistencies

>left, similar to how it was when it came out with the eggs initially
i'd be disappointed if this was the max limit
>right, about twice as much water, about as wet as it can be while sticking together
you can see its seeping out the sides so the top layer will likely end up being dusty from water travel no mater what i do
>3, submerged in it's own briny filth
may not seem ideal for construction but if I was going to use anything to make a form, it isn't a big deal

I'm also considering other liquids, but boiling off high proof alcohol to make eggs seems excessive af
if this wasnt for food though I could do 99% isopropyl and likely make neat salt figurines

>> No.12716702

>oddly enough the two 8 and 9 which could breath the least were two of the best ones
probably because they were the only ones with enough pressure on them to get the pickling processing going

I dont reeally know why weight helps do that either

you probably already know this, but highly grainular salt has additives in it that prevent it from clumping

>> No.12716751

I actually hadn't considered anti-caking agents, the submerged one might have a good chance at separating them out

I'm just using
which was nearly 2kg for 3 canadian dollars
seems to include calcium silicate as the anti-caking agent, as well as sodium thiosulphate which is an anti-fungal agent meaning they probably store this shit somewhere where they've had problems with that
the iodine smell is really strong on this stuff too, honestly wish I could have gotten my usual windsor, but it also uses the same anti-caking agent just without the strong smell and anti-fungal agents

think anti-fungal agents would be handy in this sort of process?
either way if I end up experimenting with other liquids I should keep the 'extra' chemicals in salt in mind to not get a stanky reaction

I like this way, but the soy throws the flavors off for things like pasta; simple cake pan, layer of kosher salt, three eggs placed into shallows well made with a spoon, cover with more kosher salt, total of three layers of eggs; wait 5 days

itt: anons with no idea how osmosis works.

If you want a big grateable egg block OP your best bet is to get a thin semi-permiable membrane to fill up with yolk, seal it and then saltpack the whole thing. You can remove the membrane when it's ready, might take a few weeks depending on block size.

For the membrane sausage casing or bladder would work, or fish swim bladders.

>> No.12717976

That's reasonable, being drier makes it easier to gift.

>> No.12717989

Kek it has nothing to do with osmosis
The driver here is fermentation

The pressure allows moisture be squeezed out of the yoke and that allows fermentation (somehow)
And the mixing of the salt resets the fermentation process and keeps the yoke from rotting

What's it like being this much of a special superstar?

The water moisure is leaving the egg by osmosis, there's very little fermentation because almost nothing lives in such high salt environments, the flavour comes from the concentrating of the egg since this is basically chicken bottarga, and I don't even know where you got this:

Naw man, theres no fermentation in this situation, not enough time, not enough bacteria, and too much salinity.
This is just dehydration with the purpose of enhancing flavor.

>> No.12718092

If you take egg yolks and put them in a mix of salt or salt and sugar and then let them sit for 4-7 days you can 'cure' them in a way analogous to bacon. This hardens them and greatly enhances the flavor of the yolk.
OP is figuring out an efficient way to do this as the method that is commonly used takes up a lot of space and material.

>> No.12718175

it boiled over a little bit and the salty liquid kept moving out because water goes to where sodium is, and it just kinda kept going out.

i'm also noticing other odd things like any salt that was on my stove top was running towards the burners up across the black plate around the elements, shit's been getting weird and I don't even know if I'm doing cooking stuff anymore it's slowly turning to /x/

I did succeed in getting some pretty solid slabs, these are upside down.
the thin bits still crumble, I don't think it's possible to improve that without much higher temperatures and better salts without the anti-clumping agents.

yeah a salt dough did come to mind, but the problem with that, is it limits the lifespan of the salt.
in theory I should be able to re-use the salt as long as I am able to dry it repeatedly
though these batches are clearly fairly contaminated, they could be recrumbled and washed, then filtered
but of course i'm not going to do that unless I really have to

you know, I bet the saline water soaking into the parchment also did a number on it, since the salt would be baking directly into those black lines.

the water has steadily evaporated and i've moved as much of the 'climbing' salt back into the glass

though is is very interesting to me, I don't think the 'climbing' salt had a desirable structure for what we're trying to do!

well I wasnt able to get a good photo of the difference, but basically after a little wiggling around this should give you an idea.

it's significantly softer, meaning 1cm seems to be the max depth limit (5mm each crust) for this temperature regardless of time.

the parchment lasted fine for shorter bake times and could even support the weight of the salt, but at 1cm I think it will be too brittle, at this point I'm making delicate china cups

I'm going to have to take some crumblings and dilute them in isopropyl and then ignite it to see what happens

okay something kinda exciting

I think the heat sped up the crystal structure reaction on the outside, but that is also possible.
the method I used isn't super comparable since its just the yolks that were used but I am interested in trying whole eggs both in and out of shell

I used I think 7 days, while the normal method used 4.
the eggs in mine are essentially still raw while both of those methods they cook the eggs.

I don't speak the language but something to know about eggs, the shells are permeable and on the inside of the shells there is a membrane that lets air in but not out, so if you store eggs in a bag with onions or fish, your eggs will taste like onions or fish.

partially, at this point i'm exploring more a method to make salt into a lattice or something

if you take a burner out and put it in improperly, it won't be level
so I'm going to abuse that to keep the pocket on an angle, so it doesnt just spill out, and it will be directly on the burner, containing eggs.

also seems the salt needs to be nearly perfectly dry before you can really do anything with it laser wise, the forks and shit didn't work, just foamed up into very vague shapes and reabsorbed the liquid beneath itself.
maybe if I used an oil instead it wouldnt foam and would more readily absorb heat?
can I even do that? wouldn't that just produce shit tonnes of smoke once it hit smoke point fuck

Indeed the yolk will taste.. sandy, to put it into words. That's actually the texture highly prized. Also duck eggs are used instead of chicken.

the pocket egg tasted very good, it's salty, but not over salty and all the flavours are very concentrated.
I ate the whole thing before remembering that I needed to try it's whites on their own.

I'm going to need to make a salt skillet

the egg whites are a little hard to describe, but i'd say they honestly almost taste like marshmellows.
both have that slight pumpkin seed flavour, I'm not sure if it's that umami meme people always go on about like someone said, but if it is I don't see the fuss
it's a pretty common flavour

anyways 9/10 would recommend, whole thing was a lot easier to do that I made it I think, but thats the point of experimenting.

the shape I initially had with the brick that had a trench>>12714630 was probably the ideal shape for everything I did, but I didn't use it as an entire corner came off.

so basically theres some chemical reactions going on which are sped up with heat and pressure, between the remnants of
the anti-caking agent
the anti-fungal agent
the potassium iodine
the eggshells

so bone ash
is made of two things
Calcium oxide
and Phosphorus pentoxide
both of which have caustic as shit reactions

>Phosphorus pentoxide itself is not flammable. Just like sulfur trioxide, it reacts vigorously with water and water-containing substances like wood or cotton, liberates much heat and may even cause fire due to the highly exothermic nature of such reactions. It is corrosive to metal and is very irritating – it may cause severe burns to the eye, skin, mucous membrane, and respiratory tract even at concentrations as low as 1 mg/m3
>Because of vigorous reaction of quicklime with water, quicklime causes severe irritation when inhaled or placed in contact with moist skin or eyes. Inhalation may cause coughing, sneezing, labored breathing. It may then evolve into burns with perforation of the nasal septum, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Although quicklime is not considered a fire hazard, its reaction with water can release enough heat to ignite combustible materials

it's like all of our bones would just burst into flame if we added water
>but you don't have any phosphorous to make this reaction
egg whites have small amounts of phosphorus, but yolks have nearly 20 times the phosphorous egg whites have.

comparison, the yolk was done without 'dithering' which is a new feature to me since I've switched software.
I used to use this thing to write addresses on envelopes by setting it to low power, dither just assumes you're using max power and pulses to simulate what fancy ones do, but its difficult to use on such a difficult material like salt without the pre-heating

yolks act differently than whites, scorch a lot more readily since it has less water content.

I was asleep
turns out I had spent 36~ hours awake playing with salt

I've misplaced my camera again last night, and though I was planning on using the eggshell brick, I cannot get it out of the dish, so i'm going to try and wet it to move the salt out.

it seems like the center of it is harder than the crust though which is exciting, but also means I couldn't even attempt to shrink it via freezing (and that would more likely damage the glass anyways)

so I'm pretty much limited by my equipment right now unless I go out and buy something like >>12721896 suggested, or even a springform pan.
all of my cheap sifto is contaminated to shit right now anyways so this is probably a good time to do that

what I'm going to do is simply use a lot of water and a small amount of salt, and continuously stir it to dissolve the salt.
after that point I'll be left with a massive amount of brine, I did a small test batch for filter retrieval earlier, thats what the filter was from.

I'm going to be building some new equipment for this

I would never take it off, that's the main reason why I always use it.

makes it so less underage instant filterers from /v/ talk to me, it's a massive improvement when you're left with only people that can think coherently for themselves ;))))

okay found it, it was with my coffee filters
basic idea here is, i'm using going to use multiple cheap paper filters and one of the stronger bamboo filters for the final filter.
gonna be tricky getting this shit in the second pepsi bottle without a funny though so I guess it's becoming a very tall funnel.

I have some other ideas as well such as using a string to slowly 'wick' away liquid and salt but I'm not sure it will work well for the amounts i'm using, maybe a cloth would be better? I could even hang and dry those then crumple off the salt, I was able to take a fair amount of salt off the paper filter.

part of me is considering stuff like regular paper, newspaper and
but there are so many chemicals in paper. I suppose napkins would do, they're about the most flavour neutral paper you can get larger than a coffee filter

also I forgot to post after eating the two squares but the one I cooked only one side was goodish, the other was pretty rubbery
salt block is superior to laser for cooking eggs, saltcups would be best, in little silicon cups

so heres the new setup for this
basically took the bottom off while leaving the top ridge for support, squish too much if you remove it and everyone does that I don't know why

then drilled a hole in the bottom, and it's now a simple tool to allow me to push the undissolved chunks to the side while I pour, chunks are heavy and could mess up the filter.

yes, very much so

it's right now just a waiting game, i'm going to make some actual food while the sediment which got past the filters separates.

I tasted some of the brine after it came through the filters
and it surprisingly, tasted very salty.

no, wait. I'm not retarded, I was just expecting it to be gross. Like still fairly contaminated
so it seems that I won't likely have to do much more processing to remove contaminants than letting the brine settle, perhaps running it through another filter would help with colour but i'm not too concerned about that.
there is a small amount of grittiness in the taste, it's tastes like the highest saline concentrated beach water in the world, likely from the calcium.

at this point I think all the anti-clumping agents should be removed, unless thats some of what is settling on the bottom, but I figure that to mostly be calcium.
I'm unsure what colour it'll be when this is done but i'm going to make some real food while this keeps working away

>> No.12725993

I'm kinda realizing as I get ready to make my pasta that I've got a different sort of problem that we witnessed on the first day >>12717691

so, salt lowers the boiling point of water, which is a pretty standard thing to do for making any sort of pasta
but like 1tsp in a pot of water would be less than a couple percent concentration so what fucking temperature would the boiling point be for a brine this fucking concentrated or stronger
because if a single bit actually boils, tossing small amounts of salt, we will have a repeat of the climbing salt, water moving towards whatever dry salt is around

Would I actually be best off abusing this and having a tray underneath to catch the clumpings?

>> No.12727715

You can melt salt pretty easily with a basic home foundry setup. The melting point is only 800c, and you can easily break 1000c with just charcoal and forced air in a hole in the dirt.

Seeing the pockets earlier got me interested in some sort of cast salt egg dish thing, like how fast food places cook them to put on egg mcmuffins. It looks like it casts decently well, whether or not the surface afterwards would be any good for cooking on, or if it would even transfer any salt to the egg.

>> No.12727763

at 800c melting point you're risking your containers
i'm also on the third floor of an apartment building and having molten metal travel through to the basement is very alluring

but, I do know mineral oil is used in casting and is most likely the reason it's on the salt block ingredient list
there are ways to bring things up and past oven temperatures indoors but i'm not 100% certain I trust propane flames to not alter the taste of the salt

i'd also end up having to weld up some molds

actually now that I think about it, I have this brand new 200 dollar charcoal barbecue that I stole from the hallway a couple months ago because the 8+ people living in a 1 bedroom apartment across from me kept putting it infront of my door because they had no room to store it

they no longer live here because they got evicted for having 8+ people living in a 1 bedroom.

anyways assuming I can figure out a way to make this not as dangerous as I think I am I could totally set this up in the kitchen no problem

>> No.12727781

However much ventilation you think you have in that kitchen, its not enough if you are playing around with a charcoal grill.

>> No.12727841

There's a lot of sparks and it will absolutely fuck up anything metal you try to contain it in if the heat can't escape. There's actually not much smoke once it's going but I still wouldn't do it anywhere indoors not specifically designed for ventilation. Maybe if you can rig up a fume hood out the window or something, but then you have to worry about the hot gasses running up the side of the building. I'd just do it in the parking lot, or someone else's parking lot maybe.

That would probably work, maybe with some modifications. Really the setup is pretty simple, you need a pile of charcoal that isn't going to spill everywhere and a way to blow a ton of air into it from the bottom/side and that's pretty much it. If you're not sure it'll handle it you can make a really basic refractory from just mud/clay/sand whatever, or cat litter and make a box full of dirt to put a hole full of charcoal in.
A crucible is a little harder but if you're not getting above 1500c(which is definitely possible to do, being able to adjust your airflow is helpful to limit temperatures) then you can just use steel, don't have to worry about graphite or anything.

yeah I guess that's a good fucking point, even if I was to rig something up to isolate it every time i'd lift the lid we'd get plumes of smoke.
shame, I was warming up to the idea of having a use for it.

Though I suppose I could still use it as a cold smoker

if the rain didnt run down my outside wall my place would probably have big smoke stains from some of the shit I do in this non-smoking building.
I guess at least i'm not smoking, but it gives me doubts that any of the monoxide detectors in the building work since i've lived here for years now.

I forgot just how big this thing is though it's like 2 feet wide and pretty thick steel, pretty heavy even while empty, I have no doubt it could handle the heat, though the legs are a little rickety for my liking since they're collapsible and has hollow plastic wheels.

I don't think I need to really get up to up to actual ambient 800c, 850c+ direct should be plenty since it holds heat pretty well, so a torch should be plenty, but this thing at the very least should come in handy as a safe work surface incase I spill any molten salt Failing that i'd use my roast pan on top of my stove which could be alright

actually yeah i'll use the stove top, theres cleaning/air grates in the bottom salt would leak out of into the light-weight mystery-metal dish

however I think my main issue would still be the molds and crucible

what temperature do you think a cheap ceramic coffee cup could get to before it explodes?
I'm going to guess 799c, almost there but not quite enough. Not sure where my damn mineral oil is either, I usually use dish soap when sharpening knives
